Team USA uniforms for the Closing Ceremony made with the environment in mind

Aug 5, 2021

When the 130 Pac-12 athletes representing Team USA at the Olympic Games in Tokyo walk in the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, their wardrobe will have a sustainable twist. The outfits are made with REPREVE, a performance fiber made from recycled materials, including plastic bottles. REPREVE recycled fibers are a product of Unifi, a proud partner of the Pac-12 and founding sustainability partner of Pac-12 Team Green.

Through August 5, past, present and future students and current coaches in the Pac-12 have accounted for or helped Team USA win 23 of its 91 medals at the Summer Games. The Pac-12 has more athletes on the U.S. Olympic Team than any other conference and makes up 20 percent of the Team USA roster.
